We live in an era of plenty, where corn is so abundant that we burn it for fuel, and the top 1% of families are worth an average of $18 million. But we also live in an era of needless pain– the pain of a single mother working for $8 an hour and risking jail every time she drives to work without car insurance. The pain of a blue collar worker who can’t see a doctor because it costs too much.
I practice pocketbook politics. I know how to lower taxes for 90% of Georgians without reducing revenues. I am a professional criminal justice reformer and have spent years thinking about how to reduce incarceration while keeping us safe. I will bring new ideas to the State House.
